The areas along the administrative borders of Milan not only represent problems, but also a resource which must be recognised and relocated in the context of a system of large-scale regional relationships and interpreted outside the traditional centre-periphery relationship. A change of perspective of this type allows projects and policies to be imagined as opportunities to seriously consider unique spatial opportunities and the possibility of experimenting with new alliances and with new political and administrative entities that are able to manage projects ‘across borders’. The paper addresses subjects and project ideas that emerged from the explorations performed by the Urban Policy Design Workshop in the Milan border areas and from a comparison with two other European cities - Paris and Copenhagen - which have addressed similar project ideas in different contexts and with different outcomes.
